Confession.I have an addiction….to Nutella.I LOVE it! I am always on the hunt for recipes containing this delicious substance! When I saw this recipe, I HAD to make it! It makes the perfect snack! But make sure you have people around, because this stuff is addictive and you may end up eating all if you don’t! haha!
NUTELLA PUPPY CHOW
recipe from: Healthy Tasty Chow
1/2 cup butter
1 cup Nutella
3/4 cup chocolate chips (use semi-sweet or dark, milk would be far too sweet and you’d lose the chocolate flavor)
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
2/3 cup hazelnuts
13 cups (more or less) or one 12oz box of hearty wheat/corn/rice cereal like Crispix or Chex – try to find a hearty version so it doesn’t break down when stirring
3 cups powdered sugar
In a 350 degree preheated oven, roast hazelnuts until fragrant and light brown, about 8 minutes.
Allow to cool and remove as much of the skin as you can with a towel.
Grind up hazelnuts finely in a food processor.
Put the cereal in a large bowl and set aside.
In a pan over medium-low heat, melt butter, chocolate, and white chocolate, stirring constantly.When all is melted, remove from heat and add Nutella and stir until mixed in, then add hazelnuts and stir well.
Slowly pour over cereal. Stir with your hands! (make sure they are clean first!) It is MUCH easier than with a spoon. It may take some time since the the batter is thick.
Dump into a gallon size zip-lock bag and pour in powdered sugar. Start out with a little and add more as needed. You don’t want them TOO coated with powdered sugar because they will end up tasting to sweet. Zip up the back and shake it until they are coated.
